It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Hot Dogs.
“Definitely the perro columbiano from Aqui Columbia Antojitos (8108 37th Avenue, 718-651-6565) in Jackson Heights. There was just something about the mix of salsa golf, pineapple, and fried potato sticks — on a gigantic beef frank — that really stuck to my ribs.” –Victoria Bekiempis
“The hot dog with (fake) chili-onion sauce at Boulevard Drinks (48 Journal Square Plaza, 201-656-1855) in Jersey City.” –Robert Sietsema
“Asiadog (66 Kenmare Street, 212-226-8861), because of my undying love of Asian cuisine. Get the Mel and Steve, with a beef frank.” –Lauren Shockey
“Hebrew National (citywide), spiral cut and burnt to a charred crisp.” –Lauren Bloomberg
